Teach For Australia
Type of Organisation
Teach For Australia is an innovative non-profit organisation and part of a global
movement dedicated to developing leadership in classrooms and communities to
ensure all children achieve their potential. For over 13 years, Teach for Australia
has offered its Leadership Development Program for one simple reason – to
develop future educators and leaders to give students the knowledge, skills and
confidence to be the best they can be. We believe in educational equity – an
Australia where your postcode does not determine your future potential, the
opportunities available to you in life, or your ability to contribute to society.
Currently, this is not the case, children from the lowest-income households are
on average three years behind in school.
When you join our Leadership Development Program you’ll develop and hone
your skills on a personal, professional, and academic level and become the exceptional leader you’re meant to be – all while helping to create lasting social change.
